Open House Set for Hwy. 14 Project West of Rochester
Dodge Center, MN (KROC-AM News)- A public meeting concerning the safety of Hwy. 14 from Byron to Dodge Center is set for Tuesday evening.
A news release from MnDOT says the Sept. 20 meeting gives the public a chance to learn more about a 2024 project that calls for building a reduced-conflict intersection at Hwy. 14 and County Rd. 9 and installation of a high-tension cable median barrier. The plans also include pavement resurfacing from the western outskirts of Bryon through Kasson.
Officials say the corridor’s intersection with County Rd. 9 has a high risk for life-alerting crashes due to high traffic speeds and multi-lane crossing. The open-house meeting runs from 6-8 p.m. at the Dodge Center American Legion at 401 Hwy St. West.
The news release says there will be a virtual option for motorists to review the project’s information and to provide comments. MnDOT has also set up a survey to gather feedback on the project.
